The performance of the Probe for BMC Patrol V9 depends on many factors (for example, the network latency and the number, location, and configuration of agents). The optimum number of agents configured for each Probe for BMC Patrol V9 depends on these factors.
When the probe starts,
it connects to every agent defined in the
Consequently, the time taken for the probe to start depends on the
number of agents in the file. If the time taken to start seems excessive,
.def files and share the agents between
the two. Then run two probes, each using different
.deffile until implications on probe performance are fully understood for the particular installation.
